New Mexico is currently #1 in the nation for youth suicide. Number one. When we learned that new statistic, it took out breathe away. And while it’s true that at The Sky Center our rooms are filled with hope, love and joy, it is also true that when families start their work with us, those same rooms are often filled with serious fear, pain and hopelessness. We are working on a significant health crisis that has our children wanting to take their own lives at a heartbreaking rate. Our promise to you from our heart to yours: day after day, year after year, we truly hope youth and their families turn their lives around.
Our services—offered at NO COST: · Bilingual family counseling · Support services for youth in the hospital after self-harm or an attempted suicide · Natural Helpers programs in middle schools, training dedicated groups of students to identify and reach out to struggling or at-risk peers · Intensive graduate student internships, preparing Northern New Mexico’s social workers and therapists to fill a critical need · Mindfulness, social connection and self-regulation skills for students in our schools, reducing disciplinary measures and increasing wellbeing.
